    This test was a steaming pile of crap. Don't get me wrong, both the longsword and katana were great swords for their environment and culture, but this test was more rigged than a North Korean election.- 1.) "It's not about bashing swords, it's about footwork..." That applies to both the katana and the longsword. That applies to basically every sword there is, because people who want to kill each other tend to develop complex martial arts to help them do so more efficiently. The "unrefined, brutish knight with a 20-pound sword" is a lie made up by Victorian-era revisionists who probably never held a sword that they weren't told would make them go blind. - 2.) They tell us nothing about the make of the swords in question. For all we know, the katana could've been a 2-grand Hanwei fresh off the line, and the longsword could've been cheaper than a meth-head hooker in a trailer park. That was also a ghetto.- 3.) I smell bullshit with that ice test. From the looks of it, they used the base of the blade with the longsword, which is not the part you're supposed to cut with. The center of percussion's gonna be a good bit further out, and you'd need to get closer to it to get a good cut. And that's assuming that they didn't rig the test by giving the katana shitty "ice" and the longsword the toughest hunk they could manage.- 4.) Soldiers in the middle ages didn't wear "leather armor." That's a load of fantasy bollocks. In medieval Europe, the average soldier would've worn a gambeson, a thick coat made of fabric (such as wool or linen) which gives far more protection against the weapons of the time than you'd think (there's been tests that even showed gambesons stopping arrows fired from longbows.)- 5.) They didn't use the same move for both swords on the leather armor. The longsword was Babe-Ruthed into the dummy's stomach, while the katana was used to hack into the shoulder. Of course the katana cut better, they hit an area that's easier to hack into. That's like me saying a Beretta is more accurate than a Glock because a Beretta can shoot center-of-mass better than a Glock can shoot the left eye while I'm blindfolded and touching myself with my off-hand.- 6.) Intestines falling out of the shoulder. If I need to explain what's wrong with this, you might wanna crack open a grade-school science book.- 7.) That's clearly prop armor. You know what happens when you strike real armor with a sword? Nothing. Because you don't cut through hardened steel with a steel sword. There's this thing called "physics" that makes that rather difficult. In fact, they mention in the video itself that you would use a sword to attack the gaps in the armor, not the armor itself, so I'm not sure why they completely ignored that to wail on a piece of costume armor.- 8.) That's not how you'd thrust with a longsword when fighting an armored enemy. Instead, you do what's known as "half-swording," where you grab the blade with your hand (perfectly possible to do with a sharp sword provided you keep a firm grip and don't do a cutting motion) and either a.) use it like a spear, or b.) grab the blade with the other hand to use the crossguard and pommel as bludgeons (this is called the mordhau/mordschlag, or "murder stroke.") In this case, half-swording using the first method would drastically cut down the flex in the sword, as you'd have more control of the blade.- 9.) Why did they invite a swordsman on their show when he's not even the one doing the cutting? To give themselves an air of authenticity, or did someone on the staff owe this guy a job?

    No practical sword from any nation throughout history has ever been able to make that size of a dent in half decent plate mail. period. not a katana, not a long sword. The long sword has to thrust through a weak point in the armor, like the armpit or somewhere else they can't put sturdy plates. This is typically done with half swording for increased accuracy. Or you could perform a murder stroke where you grab the long sword by the blade with both hands and strike with the hilt (cross guard) of the blade. This technique can be performed safely even without any hand protection at all if you do it corectly, and has the same effect as using a mace or warhammer, enough blunt impact to cause a concussion, dent the armor or crack bone underneath.

  • pelayo zemborain

    You should read some history and search about the cagayans battles where 40 spanish soldiers win to an army of 2000 samurais, around the XVI century, proving thee supremacy of spanish iron and european swords. But cool..

    never use katana like this

  • Alex Tsai

    doesnt matter how good you are, theres always an asian better than you

  • TheWolfTamer

    No mention of halfswording whatsoever, which is what a knight going against steel armor like that would use

  • Josiah Cook

    bro, this boi said intestines are in the chest

  • Boy Lesmono

    Whats with this lvl 1 longsword that you found at the beginning of RPG..

  • WaffenWaffle

    So many weebs in these comments

  • DarkPenguin1010

    Those are not how you use the Katana nor the Longsword, you don't just whack at them, Katana: you raise your leg and shift all your weight down, by doing this you can literally cut a person diagonally and seperate the two different pieces.The longsword, I'm less comfortable with (I'm asian deal with it) but you have to kind of push the sword into the body instead of slashing most of the time. This is because you open up your guard if you start slashing wildly. the katana is more honour bound and only used in duels even in a battle. (search up how samurai fought)

  • Merlin Meurer

    And now use a longsword made out of decent steel insted of cheap china

  • Sơn Nam

    katana is the best sword for me :)

  • WittowBudduh

    The longsword didn't even look sharpened

  • TheTSense

    6:48 a longsword can't do that. The blade would break long before bending like that.

  • Anthony Prawira

    I think I know why the katana winI know if you like the katana sword more so you pull out stronger strength

  • long dang

    Accept it. Asians are smarter than Westerners.

  • DoctorPurpleSwag

    Not sure why this would be faked... But the long sword is dull and as it has a cone tip it should go further into armor. Also on the leather test the katana is swung in a different way than the long sword.THe katanas ice cube had a clear indentation already formed and it actually CRACKED the ice, instead of slicing it.

  • Englebert Humperdink

    Terrible test. Each sword needs to be used in a totally different style and this ain't it. This argument has already been tested and retested hundreds of times. It's all about how you wield the weapon.

  • fishCutlet

    i think that long sword needs sharpening.

  • I Have No Name

    if the longsword can.t dent an armor just shot it with a grenade launcher let.s see if it won.t😊

  • Sperm Whale

    why did he compare to different cuts, one to the rib and a slash.

  • N.45

    I want to slap the commentator

  • Under Light

    Hmm I think they sould try zulfikar too

  • Jesse Watt

    God, so much false information in the comments section. Neither sword was ever meant to cut through, or pierce, plate or laminate armour. Both sword types weighed roughly the same, with the same level of sharpness. No, katanas are not sharper because they are folded. Folding only removes the impurities in the Japanese steel, which the Europeans did not have to worry about due to their steel being of a higher base quality.Both sword types were designed to be utilised against an opponents weakly armoured areas, namely the groin, neck, armpits and joints. Swords just could not penetrate plate, or laminate, armour, and they didn't even try to do so. That is why war hammers and picks existed, because they were ideal for crushing or piercing plate respectively.Which would win, would come down to the tactical situation at the time, and if a one-on-one fight was to occur, the better swordsman would win.
